There are some important things to know before buying a pre-owned watch from King Jewelers.

The pre-owned watch market is on fire. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been a surge in interest for mechanical watches and pre-owned watches are the fastest-growing segment in the industry. The same supply chain disruptions plaguing everything from bicycles and cars to home appliances and computers are also impacting the availability of new watches. Add to that the fact that brands like Rolex are also tightly controlling distribution, which is leaving display cases empty at authorized dealers from New York to Nashville to Los Angeles. At King, we usually have more than 100 pre-owned watches on display, many of which have never been worn and still have the original tags along with boxes and papers.

Every watch we buy is inspected and certified by one of our in-house watchmakers. King Jewelers turns down dozens of watches each month
that have mechanical or cosmetic issues and since every pre-owned watch we sell is backed by a one-year warranty, everything we
offer is in the best possible condition.

Pre-owned watches move fast, especially highly collectable brands, limited edition pieces or anything that is particularly on trend like a Rolex Hulk,
Kermit or Batman. Since we’re always buying inventory, there’s rarely an open spot in the case but if the perfect watch finds you, you might
regret delaying your decision to buy.

Speaking of the perfect watch. Here are a few highlights just in case you’re in the market for something like new for your wrist:

This Week’s Pick

The Pre-Owned Vacheron Constantin Overseas is a 42mm steel and titanium automatic three hander with a slate grey dial. This watch is lightweight and incredibly comfortable on the wrist. There’s nothing flashy about it. It’s elegant, sporty and understated with great contrast between the rubber strap, the brushed metals and the dial. This beautiful watch comes with original box, papers and an extra strap.

Vacheron Constantin Overseas

Pre-Owned Rolex

There are 80 Pre-Owned Rolexes for men and women in the case today with a wide selection of never worn and like-new watches from nearly all of Rolex’s collections. Here are several standouts:

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Turquoise Dial

Pre-Owned Rolex Oyster Perpetual with a turquoise Tiffany dial in like-new condition. This is a rare watch that until today, I’d never seen in person. The 41mm Oystersteel case and bracelet provide the perfect contrast for the dial, which really modernizes the visual appeal of OP’s classic silhouette. Inside this 2021 model is an automatic cal. 3230 movement.

Pre Owned Rolex Yacht-Master 37

Pre-Owned Rolex Yacht-Master 37 in Everose Gold with an Oysterflex bracelet. The combination of a very wearable 37mm rose gold case, scratch-proof black ceramic bezel and black rubber strap allows this watch to easily transition from water sports to a formal occasion. It is water resistant to 100 meters, features a 60-minute bi-directional rotating bezel that allows quick calculation of distances in a sailing regatta and includes original box and papers. You’ll also find a 35mm two-tone Yacht-Master if you prefer the nautical look in steel and gold.

Rolex GMT Watch M126710BLNR-0002-1

Pre-Owned Rolex GMT Master II Batgirl. The Jubilee bracelet and thinner, curved lugs differentiate this GMT from the Batman version, but the black and blue ceramic bi-directional rotating bezel remains the same. It’s 40mm case holds a cal. 3285 movement and it features Mercedes hands and a blue GMT hand topped with a Chromalight arrow.

Rolex Submariner Watch M116618LB-1

A fleet of Subs that includes a pre-owned yellow gold model with a blue dial and bezel from 2014 and two black on black Submariner models in stainless. There are also two Sea Dwellers, one of which is the 44mm James Cameron Deepsea Blue with a dial gradient that goes from black to blue. The Pre-Owned Sea-Dweller is a serious dive watch that’s water resistant to 3,900 meters so take a deep breath before you strap one on your wrist.

Pre-Owned Patek Philippe

Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot

The Pre-Owned Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time adjusts from local time to home time with the push of a button. Pure elegance with a 42mm rose gold case, black dial and highly legible Arabic numerals. The subdial at 6 o’clock displays the date and an exhibition caseback provides a view of Patek’s decorated automatic cal. 324 S C FUS movement. Be sure to take a look at the unworn Annual Calendar moonphase, too. It’s a 40mm rose gold beauty on a brown alligator strap.

Pre-Owned Cartier

Cartier Tank Watch 2600-1

Along with several Roadsters, Tanks and Santos variations, you’ll find one standout ladies watch: a Pre-Owned Tank Divan in steel. The Pre-Owned Divan is a traditional Cartier Tank turned on its side, so the wide alligator strap bridges across the long edge of the rectangle. Two rows of diamonds frame the dial to complete the art deco look with sparkle and flair.

Check back next week to find out what’s just been put in the case.
